Cabomba Aquatica is one of the most popular types of Cabomba available in the aquarium trade. It is an easy stem plant, suitable for beginners compared to some other harder to keep Cabomba types. It works great as a background or midground coverage when planted in dense clusters and can grow into a thick bush of delicate green leaves.
This plant can be great for beginners because it is hardy and does not require CO2 injection. It does prefer a nutrient-rich environment and clean water. Cabomba requires moderate light or the lower parts of the stems can start to turn yellow and die off. It is propagated through cuttings that easily take root in the substrate. Cabomba can be grown submersed or emerged.
